We have a yearly tradition of heading to Sanpete County to look for Bald Eagles. Some years we have seen close to 20, other years just a few, but it is always a fun adventure.
This year we only saw 5 bald eagles, but we saw a lot of other fun creatures. Before we hit Sanpete County, we saw this herd of elk hanging out in the canyon. Then we spotted this beautiful hawk--we have the hardest time identifying hawks, but since we got such a great look we can definitely say this is a Rough-Legged Hawk. We spotted deer in lots of spots, and finally we found some bald eagles.
|The elk were right off the side of the road.|
|I think this Rough Legged Hawk has the most beautiful coloring.|
|We saw lots of deer, but this one hopped right next to us on the road.|
|These are the first two bald eagles that we spotted.|
|Then we saw this guy in the field. Mom thought it was a rabbit at first.|
|He did not like his picture being taken. He moved all over the place whenever I tried to snap a pic.|
|It will be 15 years later this year. That's crazy!|
|We love watching the turkeys.|
|And we love that our camera can take such great pics of them from across the road.|
|You can see that there was quite a huge bunch of them!|
